Preheat oven to 350º F. Prepare a 9-inch loaf pan and set aside.
Place all the dry ingredients (except the sugar) in a small bowl, and mix with a whisk to combine.
In a small bowl, mash the ripe bananas (enough to produce 1 cup) and set aside.
In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar. (I used a hand held mixer. Feel free to just use a spoon like the old-fashioned method).
Combine the eggs one at a time. Mix well.
Add in the mashed banana. Mix well.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix well.
Scrape batter into a prepared loaf pan. Bake for about 50 minutes until done. Bread should be nice and brown. Use a cake tester to make sure it is done in the middle.
Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before removing from pan.
Once cool (or until you can't wait anymore) slice and ENJOY!
